Cotswold golfing haven Tewkesbury Park has scooped a prestigious award in the Condé Nast Johansens Awards For Excellence 2019.
The 93-room luxury hotel, spa and golf course won Best UK & Ireland Hotel for Weddings, Parties or Special Occasions in the awards ceremony, which took place on 5th November 2018 at The Mayfair Hotel in central London.
The ability to host high-quality golf days gave Tewkesbury Park the advantage over the other nominated venues in the category – Tylney Hall in Hampshire and Sopwell House in Hertfordshire.
Coming from the publishers of Vogue, GQ, Tatler, Condé Nast Traveller and Vanity Fair, Condé Nast Johansens is widely regarded as the premier reference guide for independent travellers looking for hand-picked travel experiences.
Recently transformed after a £9m facelift and under new family management, Tewkesbury Park was also recently ranked among Great Britain & Ireland’s top 100 golf resorts.
“To receive national recognition for both aspects of our business – the golfing side and the hotel side – puts the seal on what has been a truly spectacular year for Tewkesbury Park” said Patrick Jones, General Manager.
“Providing the best-possible Stay-and-Play golfing experience is a huge focal point for us. Every golf day is definitely a ‘special occasion’ to us, so to be ranked as the UK and Ireland’s premier special occasions destination so soon after our refurbishment is a major validation of our recent investment, and also of the tremendous team effort shown by our staff and our owners.
“In the last 18 months I believe that we have put Tewkesbury Park at the forefront of golf hotels in the UK” he said.
The 93-room luxury hotel, spa and golf course at Tewkesbury Park now offers the complete golf break with outstanding accommodation and some of the finest playing surfaces in the west of England.
Golfers looking for the ultimate luxury golf break now have six brand-new historic suites to choose from, each offering five-star levels of opulence, detail and traditional quality rarely found in English golf hotels. Three other individually-designed ‘Indulgence’ rooms can also be found in the 18th Century manor house, and the remainder of Tewkesbury Park’s bedrooms now offer a minimum of four-star style, comfort and interiors.
Tewkesbury Park’s 6,579 yard Par 72 18-hole golf course –designed by highly-acclaimed golf architect Frank Pennink, whose Vilamoura Old Course in Portugal is among the most revered in the Algarve – recently completed a major bunker refurbishment programme. Golfers will also find a reconditioned golf course maintained by a fleet of new greenkeeping machinery, plus a new golf shop, and new locker rooms.
The friendly ‘No. 19’ café is a favourite post-golf haunt, or you can indulge your love of gastronomy with fine dishes in the hotel’s new ‘Mint at Tewkesbury Park’ restaurant while enjoying stunning views of some of England’s most beautiful countryside.
Tewkesbury Park is in all respects a first-class proposition in 2019 for UK golfers looking for a memorable golf break.
